Spring Workshop Cancellation

Dear DAORN Members and Vendors,

In these most turbulent of times, the DAORN Workshop Committee has made the very difficult decision to cancel the Spring Workshop that was scheduled for April 17, 2020, and to reschedule it for the Spring of 2021.

As part of this decision, consideration was made to not overlap events with the planned fundraiser Casino Night which is scheduled for September 18th 2020.  We hope that as valued members and vendors you will consider supporting our DAORN Chapter with this very fun and energy-filled fundraiser. We are optimistic that we will be past our current crisis and ready to reconnect with friends by then.

Please look for future communication related to the planned Casino Night and next year’s Workshop. You will be able to find information on these events in your email, on Facebook, and on ORNurseLink.

We thank you for your continued support of DAORN.

Going Out with a Bang!

Our last meeting of this fiscal year ended with a bang at the Wash Park Grille. Over 30 people attended the banquet and it was a fabulous evening hanging out, wining and dining, and enjoying each other’s company in this social setting. Huge shout out to Sandi Lindahl for organizing this location. If you weren’t there, you definitely missed out on the scrumptious Banana Cheesecake – just sayin’! See you all in the Fall!
